I worked at AlixPartners full-time (More than 5 years)
competent coworkers, challenging cases, great infrastructure and admin support
firm is experiencing growing pains and related politicking at higher levels of management
I applied online. I interviewed at AlixPartners.
It's long and will take a minimum of 3-4 weeks, longer from what I understand if you are applying for an upper management or analyst/consulting role. For my level (admin / HR related) I thought that some of this long-winded process was rather unnecessary, a bit overkill, and maybe even bordering on inappropriate...i.e having me speak with a psychologist, taking a timed SAT-style exam of which had quite a bit of math (kind of made me feel like I was back in high school again.)
I understand wanting to see how someone operates under pressure, but the way that other companies measure this typically is by timing you on written communications tests; something which is more universal. As someone who has dyscalculia, this put me in an awkward situation of wondering if I should disclose that I have a learning disability specifically with math & numbers....it doesn't hold me back professionally, but in educational settings I always had to have assistance. Ultimately, I did not disclose this information, but AlixPartners should take note that *for non-technical roles* and entry-level candidates, they're walking a fine line with some of their interview process... and most importantly, are not necessarily going to narrow down the most qualified candidates based on some of this arbitrary testing & organizational psychology ideologies.
With that said though, everyone I spoke with on a personal level there maintained a high level of professionalism and were very kind, well spoken, and thoughtful during the one-on-one interviews.
Their interview process is probably better for people whom are out of work & can commit to the entire thing! For individuals already with full-time jobs, be prepared to use your PTO.
